romney more. never uttering words like bayne, bush, or 47%. it's going to be a long two weeks before the next debate in new york for team obama. and of course, it all happened right here in battleground, colorado. it's a state that's been trending quickly from red to purple in recent years. will the first debate keep it from going blue again for the president and going back to red? good morning again from the university of denver. thursday, october 4th. 2012. this is "daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. a big hour ahead, including daily reaction from orrin hatch, governor martin o'malley and many more. let's get to the first read of the morning. in what may be the most substantive debate in the era of televised presidential debates. mitt romney performed as if his campaign depended on it, while a surprisingly subdued president obama allowed his challenger to dictate the terms of the debate. from the start, romney displayed confidence and demanding the presence on stage. he oned up the president on his own wedding anniversary shoutout. >> i want to wish you, sweetie, happy anniversary. >>
week whether or not romney gets a bumping and whether or not it's a lasting bump. there's only a month left before the election and he really needs to get some momentum going. he's been behind obama for the first part of the race. it will be interesting to see if the debate really pushes it. history suggests that it may not. >> for continuing coverage from this debate, go to nbcbayarea.com. we have posted the transcripts of the full debate as well as analysis from political experts. >>> next up, the vice presidential candidates will square off on october 11th. >>> you may have noticed mitt romney last night didn't really have very nice things to say about the bay area's tesla. scott mcgrew, what do you think? >> probably wouldn't survive if it were just starting out. romney calling tesla a loser. >> solyndra and tesla and interone, i had a friend who said, you don't pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers. this is not the kind of policy you want to have. you want to get america energy secure. >> the companies like solyndra and tesla, the company had no comment on being called
: president obama looked relaxed this week. mitt romney too, but he knows he has to change perceptions tonight. more voters now see romney negatively than see him positively. and that loses elections. >> only two presidential candidates in the last 20 years of "the wall street journal"/nbc polling have had a net negative image at this point and one of them lost, george h.w. bush. and romney needs to improve that dynamic. >> reporter: romney got good news from three battlegrounds. in florida he is now behind by just one point. still way down in ohio. but in virginia, romney is down by just two. with a lot on the line in past debates, romney is doing well. >> going up against mitt romney is not a fun thing. he has the fax. he drills you. he stays. he is tenacious. >> reporter: and sometimes aggressive. >> the idea that i'm anti-immigrant is repulsive. don't use a term like that. >> reporter: aides admit barack obama in debates can sound like a professorial no-it-all. >> i understand the broader point that senator clinton has been trying to make over the last several weeks. >> reporter: tonight's
for romney. just a few weeks ago, it kind of evened up and just in the last couple of weeks, it has -- you know, not only is president obama pulling ahead, but senate candidates, a lot of people thought no chance. tammy baldwin, clair mccastle, go down the line and now they are not talking so much about the republicans winning back the senate but in some circles, i heard talk of democrats taking back the house. >> not going to take back the house. let's look. so we had the primaries at the beginning of the year. that was about a whole host of candidates fighting it out between themselves. romney was really not ahead during the summer. he was making this race tighter. that's what happens over the course of the summer. then have you conventions where both parties get to see. romney -- >> virtually no bump in the obama -- got a huge bump. >> do you think he's going to get a bump when you have a democratic convention that starts basically hours afterwards? i don't know if bumps exist anymore. look to the bumps -- >> for obama though. >> but that bump is already coming down. and look at the bum
will make the fight on monday and tuesday and wednesday of next week. will it be to attack governor romney and pick apart what he said in the debate or will he try to regain the initiative some other way if in fact they change the initiative of the campaign. >> well i think they're going to try to do both. they're going to pick up certainly on a number of things he said about both medicare and about his tax policies. they will clearly try to draw a contrast between mitt romney during the primary season and mitt romney on the stage in denver this evening. i'm sure they're going to stress some women's issues which really weren't discussed much this evening. and the immigration latino issue. all the surveys, and maybe they'll change too, fit really rises. he's running 21 behind latino votes and that's death in a a couple key battle ground states. >> i made this point a little while ago and i'll make it again. you cannot overstate the extent to which all of this stuff that goes on in the campaign is important. but out in chicago what they have been doing for a year and-a-half is they've been c
of telegraphing this week from mr. romney, that maybe he will put some details into his economic talk. he's started to float some new ideas about taxes that he never floated before. my question is whether or not he thinks the right place to unveil those is in a debate setting. surprise the president with something he's never said before or if he wants to save that stuff for a more controlled environment. that will tell us as much about his temperament and his strategy as it will about his plans. let me bring in lawrence o'donnell, chris. lawrence is in the spin room tonight, which i think has yet to begin to spin. lawrence, what do you think the expectations are on both sides tonight? >> reporter: well, rachel, in this room, there are a lot of $10,000 bets going on behind me about what the president is going to say tonight and what mitt romney is going to say tonight. i think the rules actually favor president obama because there are almost no rules. they are going to do two-minute statements, they're each going to get two minutes at the beginning of the subjects that jim leherer will int
, a vice presidential debate next week and then two more debates with mr. romney and the president, there was a moment, john during the debate, where the two candidates were attacking each other's tax policy and i think it's a good window on how the candidates felt free to go after each other. let's have a look at that for just a moment. >> if you believe we can cut taxes by $5 trillion and add $2 trillion in additional spending that the military is not asking for. $7 trillion, to give you a sense over ten years that's more than our entire defense budget. and you think that by closing loopholes and deductions for the well-to-do somehow you will not end up picking up the tab than governor romney's plan may work for you. >> i want to lower spending and encourage economic growth at the same time. what things would i cut from spending? well, first of all i will eliminate all programs by this test, if they don't pass it. is the program so critical it's worth borrowing money from china to pay for it? if not i'll get rid of it. obamacare is on my list, i apologize mr. president, i use tha
signaled he would do that for weeks. obama's team even said to me we can't believe romney's signaling he's going to do that because we're already prepared for what he's going to do. and then obama failed to respond. >> rose: go ahead. >> when mitt romney was fulmining against the wall street banks, which would would have thought that moment, again that moment like josh said where the president was like really, mitt romney's like saying dodd-frank was not tough enough. i thought that you saw, you know, to go back to the old trop, people knocked around the campaign when the etch-a-sketch comment was made back at the end of the primaries. but the truth is -- >> rose: he's going to write a new script is what he said. >> yes and the obama campaign thought that's what they expected to happen. that's why they thought romney was a dangerous candidate because he would etch-a sketch and go back to being a previous incarnation which is a base loving base enthusiastic trying candidate. he would be a pragmatic moderate massachusetts governor. that would be a dangerous candidate for them to have to
towards mitt romney. i now think there is an enormous amount of pressure on joe biden next week as he goes into the debate with paul ryan. after that 2004 first debate debacle it was dick cheney. it will be interesting to see how this sets up. >> lawrence? >> governor o-mal mgovernor, yo candidate get up there. some people feel mitt romney dominated by bringing more energy to it. how did you see it? >> well, i think the president has always had a certain dignified reserve and i think that's one of the admirable qualities about the president. as i was watching the debate i think what mitt romney really needed tonight was a big game changer. he needed to address the observation that he hasn't had any specifics for all of these great promises. you know, $5 trillion in cuts but it won't add to the deficit, trust me i'll tell you later. eat cake, lose weight. so i don't think he got the game changer he needed tonight. i do think the president was particularly strong, though, in getting governor romney to admit that he does want to turn medicare into a voucher program and i also believe the pres
and stronger economy and those are not the sort of prescriptions governor romney has. >> what about next week's vice presidential debate? do you think there's something in this debate that joe biden should be paying attention to? >> i think he should continue to press the romney/ryan ticket on their specific plans and their specific promises. a $5 trillion tax cut is going to have to come on the backs of the middle class whether in the form of more expensive college tuition or more expensive medicare or more expensive taxes. they're in this la la land just saying trust us we've got you covered. that's not the way the world works. >> thank you back to you. more ahead. this is msnbc's live coverage of the first presidential debate. stay with us. humans -- even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? hey. hey e
romney will meet again in less than two weeks for a town hall-style debate. for cbs news, the white house. >>> and tomorrow morning, president obama will be in fairfax at the rally center for the arts concert hall. >>> all right, we are following breaking news for you right now. people are all trapped inside and ken ken is live with the latest on that. ken? >> reporter: yes, we are talking about a three-story building. you can see what it looks like right now. firefighters are still hitting some hot spots right now. the fire has been knocked down. still firefighters here on the scene. the folks are still outside. and i want to bring in now the chief as well as the d.c. fire chief here. talk to us about what happened here. >> our units arrived on the scene from the second and third floor. we had a man jumping from the is educational background -- from the second floor. >> okay, you had one that jumped? >> yes, sir. >> how is that person doing? >> i cannot reveal their condition, but they have been transported. >> we also heard that one firefighter was injured, is that correct? >> yes, that
a point closer than it was a week before, within the margin error. romney opened up a lead he hadn't had a week before, month before, who is the better of two to handle the economy and create jobs. romney narrowed deficit about who cares for the middle class. there are kind of four important metrics i've been paying a lot of attention to within our poll and other polls that are kind of lower in the cross tabs but matter a great deal which is, who is a strong leader? who can get things done? and those have been neck-and-neck. romney has had the lead on who can actually get things done and, i think he will, he will build on that. but the fact that more people thought romney would be the best of the two candidates to actually accomplish something shows there was upside potential and upside growth. you remember back in 2008, i've been saying this for months, at the height of his popularity barack obama only got 52.9% of the popular vote. so, even though he still is leading in the swing states and those will tighten up, romney does have a floor that he can build off of from 2008. >> holman, a
, trickle down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> romney kept attacking o mode instructions. obama some times had trouble getting a word in. many u.s. media analysts say romney had a belttter performan. the candidates have two more debates they have five weeks to win over undecided voters. turkish forces have fired artillery shells across the border into syria. they're retaliating for syrian mortars that landed in southern turkey. it killed five people including a woman and her three children. the mortar landed in the turkish town of akcakale. they have warned of prompt action if their security was threatened again. turkey has provided support for the opposition free syrian army and the turkish military has been building up tanks. turkey has provided support for the opposition for syrian army and turkish military commanders have been building up their forces and deploying tanks along the border. >>> u.s. secretary of hillary clinton has condemned syria for its part in the exchange of fire. >> we are outraged that the syrians have been shooting across the bo
this is what they want from the romney campaign. we've had two weeks of this. and there is a choice election. they laid out their vision for the few turk a lot of talk about the future, less talk about the president's record. i think that is what conservatives wanted to see all along. they'll see it from paul ryan. >> and this is tonight incredibly exciting. panel, thank you. >> coming up... >> thank you last call, one more quick round before we turn down the lights. the debate kicking off on a personal note. another look at the moment with both candidates smiling next. so anyway, i've been to a lot of places. you know, i've helped a lot of people save a lot of money. but today...( sfx: loud noise of large metal object hitting the ground) things have been a little strange.

for their only debate next week. president obama and mitt romney head back out to the campaign trail today where the president making stops in colorado and wisconsin. romney will travel to virginia. let's get a bit more into this debate. joining us now for more is a republican strategist and former mccain/palin aide. and a democratic strategist and former senior adviser to the presidential campaignses of john e he hedwards and wesley clark. let's start with you. by all accounts this was going to be the debate where mitt romney would be the strongest on the issues around the economy because really the president's coming from the back foot on these issues in what have been difficult few years of his leadership so far. so he couldn't fail on do well surely. >> all accounts going in did not add up to what actually happened. the expectations for mitt romney were high, but he exceeded all those expectations. this was the best debate of his political life going back to his first campaign in '94, the gubernatorial campaigns in massachusetts and all the debates they had in the primaries. this was a great
well convinced that governor romney didn't meet that standard. >> reporter: a little more than a week before the second presidential debate. they will be hitting it hard in the debate. romney and ryan in friendly territory here in fishersville. the rally won't be until later on today because they want all those sound bites from last night's debate to marinate before romney and ryan take it stage here today. bill: john roberts in the western part of virginia. martha: while all this marinates. president obama has been hit with some criticism from some republicans for bringing former president bill clinton into the mix. >> we tried both approaches. the approach governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years, we ended up moving from surplus to deficits, and it all culminated in the financial crisis since the great depression. bill clinton tried the approach i'm talking about. we created 23 million you are in jobs. we went from deficit to surplus, and businesses did very well. martha: don't fo
or heath. take a romney kicker any day of the week. throughout the night romney repeatedly claimed he was the real friend of small business. even as we know saying something bad about small business has become new third rail of american politics. this comment is typical. >> there's a survey done of small businesses across the country. said what's been the effect of obama care on your hiring plans? and three quarters of them said it makes us less likely to hire people. >> all right. let's take him at face value for a moment. small business truly gets a boost if you elect romney, you need paychecks. the company's growth is in the hands of small business expansion. obama bears take note. you might be tempted to short paychecks on the democratic victory. but remember, you have to pay that bountiful dividend if you short the stock. along the same lines, romney claimed that obama's poll advise causing an increase in the use of food stamps. >> the proof of that is one out of six people in poverty. the proof of that is we've gone from 32 million on food stamps to 47 million on food stamps. >>
of debt. and mitt romney got a chance to put forward his plan and vision this evening and i think it's going to have a significant impact on the narratives in days and week as head its interesting the debate elevated the discussion. we didn't hear anything about the case for governor romney. we didn't hear about president obama saying you didn't build it or something like that. this was a more elevated discussion. we don't see a lot of things on ads tonight. >> right. i think that is good for the american people because it's a substantive discussion about issues and i thought that again, that governor romney came across with great command and energy. and that i'm certain next time he'll be better prepared. and there is a discussion about what's happening in latest attack ad. it's about the issues and i thought that it was for that reason a good debate. that was very impressed by and pleased with the governor's performance tonight. i think it gave him an opportunity he hasn't had before with people who are undecided. they had to have walked away tonight impressed by what they heard an
that romney now put on the table that's open to attack. and it's going to make for a two-week run of paid and earned media that's going to lead to the next presidential debate here in new york at hofstra two weeks from now. >> and this sets up the vice presidential debate. paul ryan and joe biden. >> that is going to be -- >> people love to say these vice presidential debates don't matter. go back to 2004, they do matter. >> i think this one does. >> and they matter because george w. bush had a very bad first debate. but you know what? dick cheney, sitting down, stemmed that tide and actually gave republicans a reason -- everybody was painting dick cheney as darth vader, as they always do. he sat down and he just absolutely demolished john edwards. it looked like there was an adult and there was a child in the room. and it actually gave the bush campaign new life. >> i think paul ryan represents, i mean, really specific ideas. >> right. >> you know? it's going to be -- >> i think it's -- and i think it's going to be great. you know, the pressure, actually, i would have never believed i wo
. it was to me both things. president obama could have realized how well romney was doing and try to engage but he really didn't. jenna: let's talk about where the president has shown up over the last several weeks and months because the debate is just one part of a big campaign strategy. here ace list of a couple of the interviews that the president has done. "entertainment tonight." people magazine, the view, david letterman, jimmy fallon, glam or, magazine. he hasn't had a news conference in about seven months. considering that, a.b., how do you think this might change the president's strategy over the next several weeks up until voting day? >> well i think the president is going to realize that there was a universal consensus that mitt romney won the debate. the it didn't matter which party people were from, who they were supporting, everyone agreed mitt romney won. the president will come to the next debate on october 16th i think in different form, no matter where he is in the polls. he looked last night like he was projecting his lead and i think he will perceive that now as a mistak
